“Good morning,

I just wanted to thank everyone who was involved in making the day so special for our King Offa pupils. They have not stopped talking about it!

Many thanks,

Fran Meader”

“We just wanted to provide some feedback on our week with Buzz Active Eastbourne. We were really impressed with the confidence, enthusiasm, knowledge and skill of the instructors. They were fantastic at engaging and enthusing our pupils, some of whom were a little nervous of the water! They were incredibly patient and kind and as a result our pupils had the most amazing week. The versatility of the instructors to switch activities based on the changing weather conditions whilst still ensuring our pupils didn’t miss out and had a great time was admirable. The vast majority of our pupils picked their day with Buzz Active as their favourite experience of the week (no mean feat when it has included activities such as Thorpe Park amongst others!) Thanks so much for having us and we have already emailed to book in again next year!

“Just want to say ‘thank you’ to all the staff who made last night. ‘ hottest day on record!!’ 🥵🤩 such fun/ a pleasure. FABULOUS wonderful experience.  I’m Grandma to eight year old Rowan and just to see the smile on his face from the thrill he got out of last night was pure magic.

“I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff at the Cuckmere. All the Heathfield Community College students and staff had a wonderful couple of days on the water.The staff engaged with students, supported them and gave them an experience that they will always remember when they think back on their school days.

“Just a quick note of thanks for the 2 trips we had with you this month.

Everyone loved them, and yesterdays was really special, going up the river a little.

All of the instructors have been wonderful and kind to all our people, and we have managed to see everyone get up on a SUP that has come this year.

Warm wishes,


Tilton House.


“We have 200 of our Year 7 students taking part in team and skill building activities at @Buzz Active Water Sports down on the seafront this week.

The weather has been glorious, with Eastbourne well and truly living up to its ‘Sunshine Coast’ name! Our students have certainly made the most of being on the water.

Activities have included windsurfing, kayaking, raft building, sailing and stand-up paddle board classes, undertaken with smiles and good humor all round.

Undoubtedly though the highlight of their trip has been the opportunity to ‘dunk’ their tutors off their paddle board (just ask Mr. Lennon how he feels!  Poor Mr. Lennon).

What a week!

A very big thank you to Buzz Active for hosting our students , we certainly highly recommend.  A great company offering a huge variety of activities right on our doorstep in Eastbourne, if you want to gain confidence on the water and have some fun then definitely give them a go.

As ever, a huge thank you to Mrs. Papagna and everyone who supported the students in this trip and, as ever, a big thanks to her trusty steed – Biscuit the dog!”

“Thank you for setting up two water sports activities this summer.

I would like to mention that both your instructors, Luke and George, were excellent in their skills in dealing with our young people- both being expert tutors- being supportive and understanding with the skills levels of the two groups- whilst also ensuring the day was great fun. I was very impressed with both of them. They are definitely, in my opinion, great assets to your staff team and were responsible, in a very large measure, for the success of our visits.

I hope I will be able to rebook with you again soon.

Best wishes



My daughter, who is twelve, had a whale of a time on the Buzz Cuckmere Adventure week.  She had a great time kayaking, den-building and orienteering and particularly enjoyed stand-up paddle-boarding.  She said that the staff were really friendly and enthusiastic, and wanted to go back for more, so that we ended up sending her to another session of kayaking the following week.  When she got there for the second time she was very impressed that the staff remembered her name and welcomed her back.  Again she had a great time and I think she will want to return again in future holidays.  Thank you very much to all at Buzz Active!



“The students were ecstatic about their ‘Activities Week’ experience. Nervous first timers soon gained confidence while those with a bit of experience delighted in showing off new tricks. Thank you to all the Buzz staff for making it such a fantastic week.”

James Towner, Cavendish School

“The children had a fantastic time at the Cuckmere, and next week we will be doing some persuasive writing, making posters encouraging children and families to go kayaking.”

Catarina Granville, Harbour Primary School

“As a school we brought down 15 students to do their level one in sailing. Staff were professional, facilities were great and all had a fantastic time. Will definitely be bringing more students in the future.”
